Better Late Than Never...Photo Wrap-Up 10

Ugh.  Sickness has hit here at the farm.  Owen had a neurology appointment last Thursday, and the doctor is housed at the Children's Hospital.  His seizures and tremor have returned, and we're going to try to up the dose of one of his seizure meds and hope it helps.  On a positive note, the slightly increased dose is appearing to help with sleep...that's always good!

Unfortunately, it seems like every time we go to the hospital, we end up leaving sick.  Probably has something to do with the ER being there as well, and sharing the elevator with all kinds of little germies. 

Anyways, we had a sick weekend.  And I'm super thankful to be feeling a little better today.  As the kids wake up, we'll see how they are. Hopefully better!

So since I didn't feel up to sharing my photos on Saturday, I wanted to get them out this morning. 

Hope you are all feeling well!

Bryan is learning how to braid paracord, and decided to try a dog collar.  Cinders looks rather handsome in this beautiful blue and black braid.

I'm trying to get better at re-purposing things around the house to help get organized.  That way I don't wait to get organized until I have money to buy fancy matching containers with. :) Bryan and I upgraded beds to one my grandparents gave us.  And that meant we had this headboard to figure out what to do with.  It works well for holding little baskets and boxes of toys.  It's still a work in progress, but it's definitely helping to keep things neater.

Expo markers work great on windows, and come off clean with a dishcloth!  Jeffrey and Ellie were getting some school practice in while I was cooking.  They wrote their name, letters and numbers.

I started a blog post about looking for spring in a snow covered winter.  We went on a walk taking pictures of signs of spring.  Here was one, the "river" running parallel with the road from snow melting.  I never finished the post though, because rain hit that night, and by Thursday morning, there wasn't any snow left, the temperatures were in the low 50s, and it was pretty clear that we found spring!

Successfully made a protected book for Owen.  And learned, thanks to a reader, that when you add tape to ziploc type bags you can hole punch them.  I had no idea!

Jayme and I took advantage of the snowless, warmer conditions to start building a fort during our special time.  Here, Jayme is trying it out.  The pine needle roof provides pretty good protection from rain! We were hoping to work on the fort more over the weekend, but since we were sick didn't get a chance.  Here's to finishing it this week!
